Everything the Samsung Themes engine still gets wrong on the Galaxy S9

Samsung Themes is the best of the bunch for Android system theming — but it still needs plenty of work.

When I came to Android, back in the Gingerbread era, the world was a dark and glorious place. Everything was black and blue and beautiful. Then the Material era came, and my darkness was stolen away and replaced with searing, sinister white and gray. I’ve begged for my dark theme to return to me ever since, even  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S9+ vs. Galaxy S7 edge: Should you upgrade?

It’s a tougher question than it seems.

The Galaxy S8 changed a lot about Samsung’s design language, but looking back on it, it wasn’t as fundamental a change over the Galaxy S7 as it initially appeared to be. The Galaxy S7 series — and especially its curved edge variant — was the culmination of many years of maturation on Samsung’s design, engineering, and software teams, and proved to be among the best smartphones released in 2016.

Best Tempered Glass Screen Protectors for Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

What’s the best screen protector for the Galaxy Tab S3?

If you’re going to bother getting a screen protector for your Galaxy Tab S3, then you’ll want to go with tempered glass. If it cracks or chips, it won’t turn into sharp, scratchy shards of death; it’ll become blunt bits, so your screen will stay pristine. That being said, tempered glass is very strong, so you’d be hard-pressed to mess it up without much force.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ India review: As good as it gets

The Galaxy S9+ is an iterative update, and that’s okay.

Samsung introduced a radical new design last year with the Galaxy S8 series, with the Infinity Display design language seeing a switch to the 18.5:9 form factor. Samsung also went all-in on its curved panels, and unlike the Galaxy S7, there wasn’t a flat screen option available with the Galaxy S8.

With the Galaxy S9, Samsung is sticking to the same design aesthetic. The Galaxy S9+ that  [Read More…]
